    That truck looks awesome BlkDrgn! Never would have thought I would like orange, but that really does look amazing. I hate the Pro-Line tires because of the way they look, but it even makes them look cool. Nice job!

    That's not my truck. That's Giovanni03's truck that's orange.
    Looks like I'm off to the store now to find that dye. Not looking forward to taking off all those stews though even with my electric screwdriver. Thanks.

    Did you leave it rolling boil during the whole time you were dyeing it?

    Finally got round to fitting my Bluebird BLSH50B servo last night, put the job off till I got all the other aluminium steering parts.

    Love the speed the wheels turn now. Massive difference from the stock setup!! LOL

    Also fitted my DHawk shocks a few days ago filled with 50w oil. Handling is much improved now, quite impressed with them. It's also tamed the wheelies a bit as well (which is a bonus) I think due to not squatting as easy at the rear with with the 50w oil.

    Thats only 4 of 6, I have two Snap-Ons that are still in the box. I'm selling off some though eventually, these things take up some serious room!

    I broke the stock shock shaft in the rear from a weird landing on a small dirt pile. Figured it'd do better but I'm just glad I spent $16 on new shafts instead of $55 on new shocks.

    I got the joy of replacing the steering servo on my neighbors x-maxx we were out having some fun and his car took a little tumble. It shouldn't of broke but it did (this was his 2nd time taking it out). I planned on replacing my servo already so I have the upgraded version in my part stockpile already so I tore it apart and replace it now it's back in action. You would think spending eight to $900 on a car that they would upgrade the servo to the metal servo the first time and Not give you the cheap plastic one. Now hopefully I don't brake my car before the replacement servo gets here.

    Put up a couple of mine for sale on fleabay along with some parts (under 02ViperGTS if anyone wants to check out what's up). Still trying to cut back to one of each color Snap-On, one 8S show, and one 8S bashed (Max5/Leopard).

    Did a set of batteries on each tire today finally (stock, Imex J'7, and MTXL). The MTXL's look so awesome but the truck drives so different running them, puts me in a constant fear that they are going to strip everything because of all that extra weight.

    Ordered Aluminum upper and lower arms and hubs, beefier springs, and a full HR setup for my basher. Running out of goodies to install so bought a Hobbywing Seaking 180A ESC and Leopard 4082 1600KV motor for my Spartan.

    That looks so good, you've done a great job! I noticed orange aluminum arms and hubs for sale on Amazon, that would really take it to another level! As-is one of the best looking trucks I've seen.

    Took mine to a construction site with a retention pond. Even when it slowed down to a crawl in the muddy water it never stopped and made it through, Thing is a beast. With all the dirt mounds and rocks the thing just wouldn't stop climbing and throwing everything. Such an awesome day.

    What wheels are those? And what adapters are you using?
